Dermatologist 's  Response

Thanks for your query

You had developed chicken pox lesions.
I would like to tell you that in cases of chicken pox infection, a person is infective from three days before the onset of lesions till all the lesions have scabbed.
Now if in you case, all the lesions have scabbed and healed and there are no fluid filled vesicles and there are no lesions with fluid discharge, then you can be declared non infective anymore. In that case, you can go ahead with any contact with anyone.
But if you are not sure about scabbing, then I would advise you to visit a dermatologist for proper assessment and advise.

Hope it helps
Best wishes for a speedy recovery
